Engineering the World through Genetic Biohacking

Mar 17, 2022

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

The emergence of biotechnology has allowed genetic biohackers to do impossible things. We now live in a world where we can engineer embryos and tissue in our kitchens. We can genetically modify living organisms, including ourselves. For the first time in human history anyone can learn to control the genetics of life. To design the very code that determines who we are. This makes people fear that biohackers will destroy the world but Dr. Zayner wants to show you how biohackers are the only ones who can save it.
